    May 27th readings - 118/107/113 (it's only reached about 102 so far this season here in Phoenix)

    But what's weird is that my March 18th numbers were 123/69/107.

    Does this only report the last month or sometime?

    Current readings are:

    High - 114 F (46 C)
    Low - 68 (20 C)
    Average - 109 (43 C)

    Will check again in a week for any variability.

    We're finishing a stretch of 110+ here in Phoenix. My garage is where the cabinet with the Hopper backs into and the garage gets morning sun. So you can imagine...

    Today's temps are better than I even thought:

    123/111/114

    Hopper on 1" blocks with fans on both sides blowing in the proper directions.

    No, the projector is hanging from the ceiling and all the rest are on 3 shelves bolted to the wall.

    I'm thinking of adding another shelf or widening the three I have.

    I am also using a laptop college under both of my Hoppers. It has made a huge difference to the touch feel of the temperatures coming off the top of the Hoppers. That is good enough for me. That, and the fact that I have no freezes, no artifacts or any other Hopper troubles, and have not for the year I have had this set up.

    placebo :D

    I have the laptop cooler and the hopper and can make tests with measuring temp of components
    not the DVR's case: who care if it's warm or hot ? if major parts are cooking inside .... slowly and steady

    High : 116
    Low: 111
    Ave: 113

    On top shelf of wall stack about 6 inches below my Sony D50 projector.

    Pic in post 64, removed the Slingbox on top High temp dropped by 2 degrees.

    Second Hopper, a 2000:
    High: 102
    Low: 95
    Ave: 96

    Located in the living room with a fan pulling hot air out of the right side of the receiver - fan seems to help.
